Grace Livingston has been a favorite of mine and this book did not disappoint. The narrator was superb. The characters were well developed as always. My only criticism is that the end seems rush, but overall great book.

I joined the military to become more than "the billionaire's son". As a military surgeon I witnessed the loss of many lives. All of their faces continued to haunt my dreams at night. That is until I met Calee, the girl who makes me feel whole again. Holding her delicate yet seductive figure makes me rock hard. Now it's her sweet moans of pleasure that fill my dreams. But she's got her own demons and they're right on her tail.

This my 2nd book from this author. I liked the 1st one so much that I decided to listen to this one. I think the book may have been more enjoyable if the narrator did a better job with the characters. I just did not like the women voices at all. The story itself was not that believable but was just ok.

What can I say? I really enjoyed this book. I appreciated the religious aspect which was not overbearing. The story progressed really well. The only thing I would fault is the transformation of Daniel. It seems to take place within a super short period of time and therefore felt unrealistic. The narrator was really good, her transition between characters was seamless. Overall very good book. I’m looking forward to listening to the next book.

Gideon Waverley, heir to the Duke of Townsend, had everything a young man could need, a promising future, a title, charming good looks, great friends, and a family who adored him. Until his body turned him into a monster. He had no choice but to separate himself from the world, to hide his monstrous self from society, to cast away his future. But the brilliant and beautiful Eve Cornwell refused to believe he could not be saved, even as she refused to guard her heart.

The story had a lot of potential but unfortunately, I found myself rolling my eyes and getting frustrated throughout. I feel like there was a lot of repetition of feelings, physical description of people and things/places. About 10 chapters could have easily been eliminated without taking away from the overall story. Eve and Gideon did not have strong characters as I would have expected. Also, I think for the time period Eve seems to have too much freedom (i-e her father deferred to her in a lot of things and also in her dealings with Gideon). Not sure I will read this author again.

When Colin Cavendish, the new earl of Drayson, informs Lucy Beresford that she and her mother need to vacate the house they've called home for the past two years, Lucy is fit to be tied. They have no money, no relations they can turn to for help, and nowhere to go. How dare the earl break the promise his father had made to the Beresfords without so much as a twinge of conscience?

What a way to end this wonderful series! Such a great and sweet story. This is the 4th one I listened to but I’m planning on listening to the one I have yet to listen to. I love Abbie and Nathaniel’s love story so much. One thing I also like about the series is the additional information provided by the author regarding lighthouses and the people who inspire the books or characters in them. The narrator did a great job and has steadily improved with each book. I am looking to listen to or read more books by this author in the future.

This is my first book from this author and I really enjoyed it. I really like the main characters and really appreciated the way the store evolved. I was reluctant to listen to it because some of the reviews mentioned how they did not like the narrator but upon listening to the sample I decided to give it a try. The most important thing to me is being able to distinguish the different characters when they are speaking and I think that she really got it down. I also loved Josiah she’s such a sweet little boy and at time I forget that he’s only 2. Will definitely listen to other books by this author.

The premise of the story was good and I think there was great potential for this to be a great one. I did not like the Duke at all. He was too feminine for my liking and as the story progressed I did not quite get at what point they fell in love with each other. The narrator was wonderful as usual but the story missed the mark for me.
